Vending Shenanigans

23 09 2008


So I was browsing the OCAU (Overclockers Australia) shop and swap section and just so happen on to this funny vending thread.

Here are some quotes from the thread with many expressing their interest in buying a fellows’ sister.


The Ad
My Sister
*****(Yes I blanked name out)
16
occasional needs feeding
$100 o.n.o

“Ill give her $10 to wash my car thoroughly and then clean my place…btw she any good at IT… maybe she could build a flash site for school for me 😛
rofl nice try buddie 😛 “

“lay buy? 4 years should cover it “

“Exactly how often is ‘occasionally’?..

Also, how much would postage be?..

Does she come with the crackers?.. If so, instant plus postage.”

“will take at instant
how soon can i pickup?”

“how much is delivered to melbourne?
an airplane ticket ?

seriously, this is the best sale thread i’ve ever seen.
my sister for sale.
oh no, crackers is gone !

“sweet…maybe a rock paper scissors to see who gets her first?”

“Will you offer DOA for sister? If so, instant pp.”

“do you have all receipts for your sister? warranty?

Now to all those that are reading this and are thinking “ZOMG PEDO” this was just a joke someone who got bored put into their otherwise serious trade tread.





Moar Figurines

8 09 2008

Woot! my package from Play-Asia arrived yesterday.
First off this was my first time ordering stuff from Play-Asia so to test the waters and to make the shipment via UPS worth it I decided to drop ~AU$60 and buy myself a few small figurines that people at cons charge like ~10 bucks a pop.
I’ll have to say Play-Asia is fast, I put my order in on the 2nd of September was held up with my online banking so I lost a day before I was actually able to pay being the following day; via DD (Direct Deposit) as Play-Asia holds accounts in Australia 😀
It took about a day before they processed my payment, and took less than a few hours to have the order out the door, and to my doorstep unfortunately it just so happens that my order arrived in Australia at the end of Friday before the weekends. Thus incurring 2 more days of waiting as deliveries do not happen during the weekends (as far as I know).
I’ve included a log of my package gotta say these guys are fast O_o

So enough rambling from me lets have a look at what I bought…

Oooo… The UPS package on my desk…

A cardboard box wonder what’s inside?

*Opens Box*

All the items I’ve ordered now to put them together…

*A few minutes later…*
Weee~~ Got the full set of the four available girls from the Sekirei set too bad they didn’t include Kazehana and Homura. (Left to right) Musubi, Tsukiumi, Matsu, Kusano (Kuu-Chan).

Here are some individual shots :3

KOS-MOS in a sexy blue swimsuit :3

Two KOS-MOSs in an orange and blue suimsuits ;_____;

Overall I am very happy with Play-Asia’s services and will be most definately ordering more stuff from them in the future my only gripe though is the Kusano gashapon looks evil .___.,,,
